I had a lot of space on my wall and needed something fairly large to fill the void. as you can see I still have much space. My brother made me a house warming gift of a lamp made with velum paper and acetate of a painting by Souther Salazar. If you have not seen his work you should check it out. Google him.
My brother needs to take pictures of this lamp and post it because it is way cool. He also has made his own rasterbation and it turned out really neat. I wanted to try it. I digress. So I found a picture by Souther that liked and he gave me the fed-ex/kinkos hook up and printed out all the pages.
I must add that I rent, and nailing 20 holes in the wall was not a good idea,plus if you nail through the picture, some of the picture is ruined, nor is taping it to the wall the classiest way... so I came up with my own solution... here it is!
Updated: here are mo better pictures
semi-tute: (more about how to mount/hang your completed project without ruining your wall, less about how to rasterbate)
1. choose a picture that you desire.
2. go to the homakasu rasterbation website, it's easy to find, then rasterbate...print out the sheets of paper. (at home or school or Fed/ex!)
3. get rubber cement, scissors, and black ( or any color you want) foam board.
4. there will be borders around each square, cut it out if you wish, cut foam board the same size as each picture.
5. rubber cement your pictures to the foam boards.
6. get some skinny pieces of wood from menards, very skinny and flat, and paint them the same color as your wall so that you see more picture and less of what it's mounted to.
7. cut the wood a little less than the width of the whole picture, my wood was so thin that i could break it with my hands. and I am so strong haha.
8. space the boards evenly for the desired height of the picture,get a hammer and nail them to the wall, only 2 nails per wooden slat, *helpful hint: you can space your pictures out on the floor which will give you an idea of the measurement of the height.
9. use adhesive mounting tape to mount your pictures to each wooden slat til you are done. make sure you do one row at a time so you can measure the space in between each picture. You can space it any way that you desire. I did a rulers width between each pic.
10. You dont have to do this but I did, lay on the ground and stretch out your back, I also like to do the childs pose. Then say out loud "geez that wasnt so hard, why did I procrastinate this project for so long?" Then take a nap.
